Our website is being gradually updated as we transition to our new school identity. As a result, during the 2023-24 academic year you will find a combination of legacy ‘Guernsey Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre’ documents and updated ‘Les Varendes High School & Sixth Form Centre’ information.

Displaying symptoms at school 

If a student presents with a runny nose and this is their only symptom, they can continue to attend school as normal. A runny nose with no other symptom does not require parents to call the clinical helpline to arrange a PCR test and we will not send a child home who only has a runny nose.

However, if a child has a runny nose combined with any other symptom linked to COVID-19, for example a headache, a cough or a fever, you should keep them at home and call the clinical helpline on 01481 220001 or 01481 220002 to arrange a PCR test. If your child receives a negative result they can return to school provided they are well enough. Please be aware that, if your child subsequently develops any additional COVID-19 symptoms after returning to school, Public Health has advised that they must be sent home and you will be advised to contact the clinical helpline again.

More information about symptoms is available here: COVID-19 Symptoms | States of Guernsey - COVID-19 (gov.gg)

School Day

Formal registration and tutorial time begins at 8.30 am and it is imperative that students arrive beforehand, leaving enough time to start promptly.

Students will meet with their tutor for 20 minutes at the beginning of each school day.  Tutor groups typically contain approximately 16 students and this quality time will enable students to work alongside each other following a tutorial programme.  

Term Dates

Applying for a School place

Being a Rights Respecting School

Les Varendes High School and Sixth Form Centre is a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.  As part of this plan we are working towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK. 

A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships, and our students are learning about their rights by putting them into practice every day. 

If you experience bullying in any form,  please complete the form for your Year group. Concerns will be dealt with discreetly and sensitively.
